Quote: I wish the people with access to the right kind of LD player, and access to the LDs themselves, would get together and stop twiddling their thumbs, because the LDs are just bit-rotting away while we're going in circles. All the pieces are there, someone just needs to put them together.
In addition to the bit-rot situation on the LDs themselves, I'm also concerned that the "right kind of LD player" may be harder and harder to obtain in the future as things break and people toss old hardware that they can't hook up to their 4K TVs. How common is the "right kind of LD player"? Maybe we should be picking them up on Ebay (assuming they ever show up there) and stockpiling some extras.
